Michelle Lambert is the communications director for Move to End Violence, a project of the NoVo Foundation.
For more than 18 years, Michelle has worked exclusively with non-profit organizations, foundations and government agencies to create high-impact and memorable communications for some of today’s most pressing issues.
Before joining Move to End Violence, Michelle ran her own communications practice, providing organizations working on progressive issues with both traditional and new media counsel. Her clients included the African Wildlife Foundation, Family Violence Prevention Fund, the Jane Goodall Institute, Metro Washington Council of Governments, New Buildings Institute, and the Reproductive Health Technologies Project.
Prior to starting her own practice, Michelle was an account supervisor for DDB Worldwide’s Issues and Advocacy practice in Washington, D.C., where she helped issues-based clients promote their causes. Working with the David and Lucile Packard Foundation on a multi-faceted national campaign, Michelle helped launch two award-winning websites designed to raise awareness about international family planning. One of the sites launched with a live webcast—the first of its kind—from the White House with Former President Clinton.
Michelle began her career focusing on environmental-related clients, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, where she helped lead the introduction of the Energy Star brand, now a household name.
Michelle holds a B.A. in Anthropology, with a focus in African Studies, from Connecticut College.
